Pelini: Huskers' goal is shutout vs. Missouri

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska coach Bo Pelini says his team's goal is to shut out fourth-ranked Missouri on Saturday.

Pelini said Tuesday that he's never gone into a game willing to make concessions to an opponent. So he's not content to give up field goals rather than touchdowns. He wants to surrender nothing.

It's a tall order for a defense that allowed 377 yards and 35 points to Virginia Tech last week.

Missouri brings in an offense averaging 54 points and 595 yards a game and a Heisman Trophy contender in quarterback Chase Daniel.
